Our experience with Golden Sierra has been more than excellent. The staff are professional, well organized, and make super use of their resources.
I’m looking forward to participating in the WEX program again not only for technical interns but for other positions for my growing company.
They carefully matched their students to our job specifications and provided excellent support for everyone throughout the internship. We had the opportunity to work with very talented, excited interns and provided them some great real life experience. We’re looking forward to working with Golden Sierra again.
When we needed to add scanning technicians for our business to meet a big project deadline, they provided us with prescreened applicants. We were able to finish that project on time and under budget thanks to Golden Sierra and the various programs like WEX and OJT they offered. We acquired some excellent workers and even though our work has slowed down for now, we still have one of the workers working for us full time. She is a great worker and we are happy to have her as part of our full time team.
My experience working with Golden Sierra has been very positive. The process to hiring our intern was painless and smooth, the Golden Sierra team did a great job in finding the right candidates and onboarding the intern.
The paperwork for the OTJ program was minimal and easy to complete, staff minimized my involvement by coordinating directly with the job candidate, staff was available and responsive to answer the questions I did have, and the reimbursement process is simple and straightforward.
Candidates placed by Golden Sierra are hardworking individuals who stay on-task, are willing to learn new skills and desire to be a positive member of our work team.
[Golden Sierra has] been extremely helpful over the last year in our hiring needs. They helped me with a Hiring Event, they did it all. Advertised, took reservation, came early to set up and check the applicant in and cleaned up. We received 20 resumes from that event. 12 of which we had or will have for interviews.
We have two employees who graduated from the OJT Program, our office manager who is going on four years and a computer technician who has been here for 1 ½ years. Golden Sierra posted a job description for a Business Services Independent Contractor. Within a few days we had 10 applicants to interview and employed a highly qualified person from the group.
Golden Sierra has been very helpful to me the last 2 years. They helped me find an outstanding HR Assistant. I utilized the Wage Subsidy program. It was very easy and actually was so smooth
